Ellenville Training Center & Hunter Mountain
“We took the 3-day class as it specialized in not just four-wheel driving, but specific issues with 4×4 RVs. The training and the technical skills development helped build our confidence and understanding of the capabilities and limitations of our Mercedes sprinter Revel van and our abilities. We have gained the confidence to do new and exciting terrain safely in our RV. We were specifically impressed with a one-on-one training we received and the concern they had for our specific vehicle clearance as the course was certainly challenging and had a high pucker Factor!”
– Michael G, Nov ’22 Tripadvisor
Adventure vans (class B motorhomes) offer the advantages of a recreational vehicle with the convenience of easy mobility (i.e. no tow rig to deal with) and are customized on popular vehicle platforms such as Mercedes, Ford and RAM. NORA’s Adventure Van program gives you a solid off road driving foundation to help you understand the capabilities and limits of your Adventure Van. This program is offered as a public class or private training with free overnight boondocking at NORA’s onsite camping area.
